Create a quiz assignment

This article is for teachers.

When you create a quiz assignment, Classroom creates a blank quiz using Google Forms and attaches the form to the assignment. You can then edit the quiz and add questions. You can also lock a quiz on Chromebooks and import grades.

Before you begin

When you create a quiz assignment, you have many of the same options as when you create an assignment or a question. You can:

  • Post the quiz to individual students or one or more classes
  • Add a due date and time
  • Add attachments
  • Schedule it to post later
  • Reuse a quiz

You also have additional Google Forms features. You can add point values, give feedback, and release the student’s grade after they submit their answers.

Lock a quiz on Chromebooks

If students are using Chromebooks managed by your school, you can lock the Chromebook while they take a quiz. When the quiz is in locked mode:

  • Students can’t open other browser tabs.
  • You get an email if a student exits the quiz and then reopens it.
  • Unmanaged devices can't access the quiz.

Accessibility features in locked mode

On Chromebooks, students can use the following accessibility features in locked mode:

  • ChromeVox (text-to-speech)
  • High-contrast mode
  • Full-screen and docked magnifier

If you can't find an accessibility feature, use its shortcut.

Import grades

You can import the grades into Classroom when your students are done taking the quiz. Importing grades overwrites manually assigned grades.

If you import grades:

  • The form is limited to one response per user.
  • The user’s email address is collected automatically.
  • Only users in your domain can respond to the form.

    Note: If you don’t see Import grades, your form wasn’t set up as a quiz or you didn’t turn on Grade importing when you created the assignment.

  5. Click Import.

Classroom enters grades for each student. If you didn’t assign points, the assignment is labeled ungraded.
